SUMMARY 

The Pre's mobile hotspot feature lets you run Skype on an iPod Touch, and you can use 
Google Voice for messaging. 

I've been exploring different strategies to customize my mobile service plan. I opted to get a 
Palm Pre Plus with the minimum voice/messaging, essentially creating an approximately 
$50/month plan with unlimited data, voice, and messaging (via Skype and Google Voice).

Step 1 — iPalm Unlimited 




• Tape the phones together back to 
back. This step is not totally 
necessary. You can keep the Pre 
in your bag or pocket; the wi-fi 
signal is strong enough.
